The month of March is as mad as ever for me as it starts, continues and ends with family birthdays punctuated by Mothers Day. Not to mention the fact that it found me going back and forth to one medical appointment after another... yeah same old, same old...
So it's just one blog post for this month with a round up of the arty crafty things produced for all the various celebrations and just because.
|Original sketch and card|
My 365 project has also taken a hit as my daily sketching is not so daily at present. Still the drawings are inspiring new designs and are being tested out for my family cards as you will see from the pics.
My mum loved her card and the sentiment inside which I also took from my original sketch.. I made a few changes from the original sketch - just the word ‘Mum’ on the mug.
For Mothers Day my grandson bought his Mum his first gift of jewellry - a cute angel in his mum’s favourite colour. It came in a little plastic pocket so I decided to make one of my minibags to present it to her. She keeps it safe in there when she’s not wearing it and loves both items to pieces.

I received a couple of handmade cards for my birthday for the first time ever - that’s not including the lovely makes of children and grandson over the years of course.
My sister in craft, Shirley Davis of SDCrafts surprised me most of all as I didn’t even guess that she even aware of the date of my birthday. Such a wonderful surprise.. You can see that it features one of special 'Squirldoodles' She is such a lovely lady who knows how to cheer me up when I am feeling discouraged and I hope I do the same for her.
One of my sisters also sent me a handmade card which is very pretty. There was a note of encouragement to tell me that my cards are prettier which made me smile. The card is very professionally made so that's a lot to live up to but definitely appreciated.
Until then have a good holiday and see you next month x
